JBI tools - Screen capture/recording with Jing!
!

http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html
JING WEBSITE
!
To get a quick understanding of the software, play the 1minute Overview Video.
!
Click the ‘Free Download’ button and download the software onto your mac or windows computer.
!
So you've installed Jing, but now what? Learn how to take your first capture, and you'll get the
hang of Jing very quickly.
!
Do you see the sun? It looks like the image below--the faint one without the mouse cursor. It's
discreetly tucked away somewhere on the edge of your screen, always ready when you need to make
a capture. (Oh, and you can always move or hide the sun if you want.)

Taking your first capture:!
!
The general workflow is to select something on your screen, then choose whether you wish to create
an image or video. Record or annotate as desired, then save or share your finished capture. Below is
a more detailed breakdown.
!
1. Mouse-over the sun and three little rays appear.
• The one with the cross-hairs is Capture. This is how you start your capture.
•
The one in the middle is History. Copies of your captures are located here.
•
The one with the two gears is More. There are many settings you can change in More. For
example, you can setup Hotkeys, or make it so the Jing sun doesn't appear on your screen.
•
Click Capture.
!
2. Select an area of your screen to capture.
• You can select a window, part of a window, or click and drag the cross-hairs to select a region.
•
Decide if you want to capture an image or video. For this first capture, we suggest you click the
Image button. You can add arrows, text and highlights to images.
•
!
If you decide to record a video, note that if you have a microphone, you can narrate your video in
addition to capturing the action on the screen. Videos are limited to 5 minutes in length for Jing.
3. Do something with your finished capture.
• You could save the capture to your computer.
•
You can also copy the image to your clipboard. This makes it easy to switch to another
application like a document or email and paste the image.
•
Sharing to Screencast.com returns a convenient link which is copied to your clipboard. This is a
very powerful option in that you can paste the link into chats, emails, and instant messaging
!
clients.
That's the basic idea! You quickly capture an image or make a little video. Then, you
either share it or save it.
